Bell revealed the Nexus, pictured above. Bell is one of several companies partnered with Uber to produce flying taxi’s. They want to create a world seen only in sci-fi films from the 80’s and 90’s.

The flying vehicle has a vertical takeoff and landing. While the company showed off the cabin during last years CES, this year, it’s showing off a scale model of the vehicle now referred to as the Bell Nexus.

“As space at the ground level becomes limited, we must solve transportation challenges in the vertical dimension — and that’s where Bell’s on-demand mobility vision takes hold,” Bell CEO Mitch Snyder said in a statement. “The industry has anticipated the reveal of our air taxi for some time, so Bell is very proud of this moment. We believe the design, taken with our strategic approach to build this infrastructure, will lead to the successful deployment of the Bell Nexus to the world.”
